On several posts people talked about "Kreighofs blowing up" Can you give me some background this
What's an example of an untested load that would blow up a modern shotgun, with an unobstructed barrel?People do stupid things like not using a tested recipe when reloading and blow up all kinds of shotguns. People will also shoot while not making sure the barrel is free of obstructions. I don't think any one brand does it more than others, as I have seen several pictures of them posted here over the years.
Yes, anecdotally. Try putting a double charge in, and crimp the hull without noticing all they way through the process of actually loading the shell in a gun. Modern barrels can handle a lot of pressure. I believe there is only two ways a barrel will fail, bad steel or an obstruction.Only anecdotally, but there have been comments that a re-loading machine threw a double charge of powder into a shell - that would be one source...
Krieghoffs have a built in timer. After so many rounds, they just let go. Most of the old timers know when it’s getting close, and trade it off before it happens. This way Krieghoff is able to sell new ones. Other manufacturers have tried to copy this design, but have had spotty results.
I would almost totally agree with you but ,I have known of a couple of guns let go shooting factory. One was a BT-99 in Okla. back in 1969. I was there to see that one. It blew out just forward of the breech. Nobody hurt but it scared the heck out of us. Not sure what happened but they were some old factory shells. Another was a friend of mine in LA. who's 20 ga 1100 skeet gun went using factory Remington skeet loads. Plenty of witnesses and in the end Remington had him send the gun and ship them the remaining shells. When it was all over he signed an agreement that he would forfeit any and all claims and they gave him a brand new 3200 4barrel set. Case closed and he was satisfied.You will never have a problem if you use factory ammo. If you insist on making reloads with powder designed for use in a .410, then your K gun may blow apart, exactly like in the picture .
